  1. If you're watching this and are on the fence about taking the courses mentioned in the video, do it. It's a drop in the bucket financially and will earn you some peace of mind. Think of it as hiring a personal trainer. You can go to the gym 5 days a week but a true athlete seeks out the advice of trainers and experts to improve. Every 2 – 5% advantage MATTERS.

  2. How did you manage to afford all of this cuz law school on its own is super expensive but add new laptops, an apartment etc. To it …… did you work throughout college/law school? Because I don't want money to be the reason i can't succed/ get in law school

  3. I just got out of a toxic relationship the day that I got my first acceptance to law school. Thank you for adding the tidbit about personal relationships – unnecessary stress while in law school is not needed.

  4. There's something discouraging about attending classes online with this coronavirus going on, exams are coming up.. it's so stressful. Regardless, if I had to pick again, I'd still choose law school any day!

  5. I just started following your channel and I like your videos. I am starting Law School in Mexico in the best university of this country. I like the recommendations you give us, make me want to keep studying and learning new topics.

  6. We need more videos like these to demystify the law school experience. I am a recent law graduate and I too give advice to students interested in attending law school. Keep up the good work!

  7. My major is legal studies which at my college actually gets you your certificate to practice as a paralegal. In your professional opinion would taking a year or two before law school to practice as a paralegal A. Decrease the financial instability and high cost of law school and B. Increase my chances of getting into a better law school?
